Legal And yet another ruling. In April this year, Apple sued Samsung over several design patents and a single software patent regarding various Galaxy smartphones and tablets. Late last night, US District Judge Lucy Koh denied Apple's request for a preliminary injunction against Samsung. The actual ruling, though, is a mixed bag - Samsung is found infringing (but it's a "close question") on Apple's design and software patents (no real patents in play here, folks), but Apple has failed completely in providing any form of proof that Samsung is causing irreparable harm to Apple.

Looks like they took a big bite they can't swallow, they had best just drop the case before those patents are invalidated.
